Argentinean custom knifemaker Javier Vogt specializes in crafting intricate artistic designs, often showcasing exotic materials. In his first collaboration with Spyderco, he highlights his innovative skills by offering three blade-opening options—a flipper, a stylistic Emerson Opener, and a subtle-yet-functional Trademark Round Hole. The broad, dramatically curved blade is full-flat ground from CPM S30V stainless steel and pivots effortlessly on special ball-bearing washers. It locks via Spyderco’s patented Compression Lock mechanism, which uses nested, skeletonized, stainless steel liners in the contoured, polished G-10 scales as its foundation. A stainless steel hourglass clip on the end of the handle provides right-side, tip-up carry and allows the Emerson Opening Feature to open the blade automatically as it is drawn from the pocket.
